(chief) military administrator


Explanation:
This one isn't as clearcut as "intendant", since it does not specify a particular "job description", however, "military administrator" definitely covers the spirit of the French term.

An army is as much a bureaucracy as any branch of government and I have no doubt that even in the 18th century there were plenty of bureaucracts.

hope this helps
